VOITINSKII Vladimir Savel'evich (1885-1960). Vopros o bezrabotnyh v Gosudarstvennoi Dume [The question of the unemplyed in the State Duma].
Published in Moscow's Bolshevik journal "Proletarii", #15, 25 March 1907, pp.1-2, under pseudonim S.P-v [Sergei Petrov].
Very critical evaluation of the intervention of s.-d. faction in second State Duma on the question of the unemployment. The general point is that treating this question in such a manner will not help neither the unemployed workers, nor the cause of the revolution. Voitinskii criticises the position of Mensheviks in s.-d. fraction as not enough revolutionary. [The intervention in Duma on that question was made by Georgian s.-d. Menshevik Archil Dzhaparidze.] Voitinskii stresses that all the actions of s.-d. faction in State Duma must be made from the p.v. of the development of the revolution.
He mentions the actions' plan on the question of the unemployment, approved by Petersburg party comittee (it was under Bolsheviks' control), as the Soviets of workers' representatives which "are coming into being".
